NIAGARA FALLS – A woman said her purse, which contained cash and a Walmart prepaid debit card valued at $2,500, was stolen from her minivan while she was working at the Olive Garden restaurant in the 1500 block of Military Road.

The victim told police she stopped to get gas after she left work just before 4 p.m. Monday and realized that her purse had been taken. She told police that she left the van unlocked by mistake.

The purse contained the Walmart prepaid debit card, valued at $2,500; an Olive Garden check card with $76 on it; and $740 in cash; as well as personal cards and papers.

The woman told police that she called to cancel the cards and was told that one of the cards had already been used at a gas station and at a car wash in Buffalo.
